District News & Announcements

1/18/17

On Saturday, 2/25/17, the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District (LVJUSD) Music Department will host a Solo & Ensemble Festival for music students from the Tri-Valley Area. This is the 55th year the Livermore District Music Staff has hosted the event. The festival will be held Los Positas Junior College and runs from 8:30 am until 4:30 pm, followed by a formal, “Command Performance” at 7:00 pm in the Barbara Mertes Center for the Arts.


The purpose of a Solo & Ensemble Festival is to foster a love for “Art” music. Performance literature will consist of “classical” repertoire. Students may perform as a soloist or as part of an ensemble (duet, trio, etc.).


Approximately 200 students participate annually. Participants must be music students in their district music program. The festival is divided into five events (instrument families), Brass & Percussion, Woodwinds, Strings, Vocal, and Piano.


Entrants will have five minutes to perform their selection in front of a clinician. All clinicians are public school educators known for their expertise as musicians and teachers. After each performance the soloist/ensemble receives comments and a rating, which rates their performance against a standard for their age group. Ratings range from “needs improvement” to “superior”.


In addition, performers that have demonstrated superior musicality may receive a Command Screening. A command screening is a second opportunity to perform, this time in front of a “screening judge”. Of these screenings, 12-15 performers will be selected for a formal evening performance at the Barbara Mertes Center of the Arts.


The Command Performance represents a cross-section of the district’s music program and will represent a sampling of performers on a variety of instruments, as well as various age levels, from the district music program.


All events and performances, including the evening command performance are open to the public. Admission is free.

Happy New Year

Dear Livermore Community,

Welcome to 2017! As we come back from the winter break, I hope you are recharged and eager to take on new challenges! I am always invigorated by the fresh start a new year brings, recalling the words of Edith Lovejoy Pierce: “We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity, and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”


Each day, we find ourselves with opportunities to make decisions, with opportunities to make a difference. This month, as our nation celebrates the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his commitment to justice and equality, I would like to share how his message has shaped my own work as an educational leader. Nearly 50 years ago, Dr. King delivered a speech about the “drum major instinct” - the desire many people have to be out in front of the group, to be recognized for making a contribution. Yet Dr. King, a man who won the Nobel Peace Prize, was not one to seek the limelight or ask to wave the baton. He was a man of humility. At the heart of his speech is Dr. King’s core message: “he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.”


So, this month, let’s celebrate all who serve others. I am grateful for those in our community who are in public service, and for all who volunteer their time. Throughout our district, our staff of over 1,450 has chosen service as their vocation. I am grateful for my own opportunity to serve over 13,000 students and their families in our Livermore community. And I am grateful for your support and contributions to ensure that all of our students achieve growth and success, through the many opportunities our schools offer.

 

With gratitude,


Kelly Bowers, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
